it U possilile for men to pet into the legisla

liuir was the invention of Medill, of
the Chieao Trihune, who put it ltefuro the
constitutional convention. To please him
tlmt hoily put it liefore the peojile, who,
much 1 1 the surprise of everylmdy, Medill
included, voted to adopt the plan, and ever
since, it has lieen posil ile for a Democrat
to get to the lejrislaturo from the north pa.,

except to pile up the majorities, us of old
fi'i in principle only. In this the Democrats
have proonlily made a mistake, which will
lend to ft lilf'Tcnt policy on the part of the
I'opuUic.iPs. It now Imiks 11 s if they
would nominate Gen.. I. (.'.Smith, of Giilena,
for treasurer, who, aide from hailitv,' fi"in
the reiri"! of laru'e majorities, is one cf the
lu st men in the State, und prohahly ln-tter
known (kan almost any other, from his
fuithful mid creditahle connection with the
army,' the Centennial Commission, the State

lienc'Volijit societies, in all of which he was
und is a worker, intelligent and faithful. A

nothing of stilfuess almut him he is just
the man the peujile would like to nominate,
and tiny will if the machine men don't
cheat liim out of a fair expression in caucus
Here is a j;ood opportunity for the Repub

would scorn to do such it thin-'. Now let

A few n nutlet a'o General Shields was
on a visit to C'hicau'o, and was announced
for a leetire at McCotmick's hall on "Rec
ollections of the Mexican War.'' The lec
ture was very slimly attended, and
he came and departed scarcely fur
nishino; u pnra'Taph for the paiiers. He
ciime again last week, und the papers pub
lished columns of u'us'i and slush, civilians
risk their lives, "t scrambliiijjr for a chance
to do him reverence, while the military
parade in mud knee deep to pay homao-i;
to the hero of two wars, and the ex-senator
of two States.
Tae freedom of thecityuud the palatial Pal
mer, House for head quarter are given him,
mnl crowds come day and night to do him
reverence. The tabernacle was thronged
Monday night to hear him lecture; fair wo
men vie with brave men in
doing him honor. The curious will ask
Why all tlu1 pomp and ceremony now, nud
why so little of it on his former visit. The
answer runs about thus: The American ,
people love a s Misation, and hero worship is
more- congenial than that of deity. Gen.
Shields got into the clutches of Hen Rutlcr,
who used him to show up the shallow pre
tensions of the present house of Congress
as to its love for the old play, unless it is
accompanied by an iippmpria.inn om rec
ognition of southern claims; also to demon
strate the love of that house for an ex-con-federate
over a union soldier, when a fat
oilice was to be disposed of. Shields
didn't get the olllce. but he did
get glory in the shape of advertising all
over the land, and gleaming like a meteor
through the Eastern States, he scoops in the
dncats for his lectures and will get 11 fat
pension for life. His presence in Chicago
is a Republican trick to bury Congressman
Harrison who failed to support Shields for
door-keeper, Harrison could hardly have,
done a more unpopular thing, for his large
Irish constituency have put 011 war paint
and swear and declare that Harrison nhall
lie slain. This defection will result in the
election of it Republican In the Second dis

Reichstag to afford facilities for luistolllce

mover of the motion felt impelled by the
Holy Spirit to make the propoaal, but that
it would cost three and a half million dol

Wasiiixcton. May 10. Mr. Porter, as a
question of privilege, presented the follow
ing preamble and resolution:
Whkkkas, the State of Maryland has, by
its legislature, formally declared that due
effect was not given to the electoral vote cast
by the State on the (5th of DecemlHT, 1870,
by reason of fraudulent returns in the elec
toral votes from the States of Fonda and
Whkhkas, An affidavit by Samuel H.
Mc Lin, chairman of the board of state can
vassers of the Stitte of Florida for the elec
tion held in that State in November, 187(5,
for the election of president and vice-president,
has been made public, alleging false
and fraudulent returns of the votes for such
election in that State, whereliy the choice
of the people of that Stute was annulled and
reversed, that the action of the Statu board
of canvassers, making such returns was in
fluenced by the conduct and promises of
Hon, Edward F. Noyes, now minister to
the government of Frunce; and,
Whkkkas, It is alleged that a eonspirarv
existed in the state of Louisiana, whereby
the Republican vote in all the precincts of
the parish ot East Feliciaua and iu some
precincts of West Feliciana, at the general
election in November, 18715, was purposely
withheld from the tolls to afford a pretext
lor the exclusion lv the returning Ismrd ot
that State of the vote cast iu these precincts
for electors of President and Vice-President,
and that Jas. E. Anderson, superinten
dent of regisiration of East Feliciana, and
I). A. Weber, suiMTvisor of registration in
the parish of West Feliciana, in that State,
in furtherance of that conspiracy, falsely
protested tlmt the election in such precincts
had not U-en fair nud free, and that the
State returning board thereupon falsely and
frrudt'lently excluded the votes of said pre
cincts, and by means thereof and of other
talse and traudulent aeon by said return
ing board, the choice of the people of that
State was annulled and reversed, and that
such fiction of said Weber und Anderson
was induced or encoun'cd by the assur
ances of Hon. John Sherman, "Secretary of
the Treasury of the United States, and
Whkkkas, The gravity of these charges.
the nature of the evidences upon which they

Washinoton, May 13. When the reso
lution for the investigation of the presi
dential frauds was offered in the House to
day there was not much of a sensation, be
cause it has so long been expected. It was
noticeable, however, that tho House wits
unusually well rilled, and the first roll call
developed 227 votes, with uliout 15 mem
bers announcing that they were paired.
HLAtNE AS ADVISEIt.'
Rhone came in on the Republican side
of the House, and took a seat in the group
with Garfield, Ilalu and Foster, who went
leading in the opposition, und consulted,
with them cm the different points of order
made against the resolution.
OTIIEU HENATOKS INTERESTED.

the n;ar end of the hall, and gave an af
fected indifferent attention to the proceed
ings. Other senators were on the floor.
DCSCI SHINO POINTS OK OI1DKK.
Hale and Garfield, with Conger, spoke to
the first point of order, that it was not a
privileged question and endeavored by say
inif it would be a question ot that character
if its purport was to effect the presidency,
to draw some Democrats into such an admis

ly Peeks prominent occasions to oppose his
party friends, did so to-day, and his pluusi
blo ruiimmlng that the house has no power
to conduct an investigation touching the
presidency was applauded by the It-publicans.
Reagan, also of Texas, voted with
the Democrats, but spoke on the other side,
hanging his vote on the proposition that, as
the resolution charged Secretary Sherman
and Minister 2soyes with crimes, they should
the speak eu's nn.iso srmixErr.
Randall's ruling that the resolution was :i
privileged one was applauded, and then
Conger appealed from the decision, dosing
by a vote of 12'J to 108. On this Hen But
ler und Foote, of Illinois, vot"d with the
Democrats, and I'uckner, of Missouri, and
Mills voted with the Republicans. Other
wise the vote was strictly partisan.
OTHEll POINTS OF OKDEll.
After this the Republicans raised points
of order against the jxiwerfor the commit
tee to sit during recess; against the power
of sub-committees to ndminister oath, and
caught at nil straws. Each was lost.
AliI.E MANAGEMENT OK THE CASE.
In turn Potter managed the case well
and was ably seconded by Morrison and
Sayler. In fact, the noisy blunderers on
that side of the house w ere quiet to-day and
the whole discussion was characterized by
OIUECT OK THE HESOI.CTION.
Potter carefully said that the resolution
was one of inquiry: what ought to lie done
at the conclusion of inquiry would lie then
determined. He had no fear that it could
result in any violence.
HALE OKKEIIS AN AMENDMENT.
The contest was of .sharjicned jntcnut
when Hide tried to get in his long amend

opening the investigation to everything.
The Democrats would not allow it even t

For this Garfield and Hale started their
side in the first uproar of the day. and with
much warmth charged that the whole thing
was meant for the benefit of thtbDemocratic
party, and not to get at the truth of the
Potter answered this that the object was
not to show alleged ineffectual frauds, as
that would not hu in compliance with the
memorial of a sovereign state complaining
that it had not received the liencfit of its
vote. Several times Garfield, with the pri
vilege to ask a question, made a short,
speech from his stanilixiint, showing much
feeling. Potter, in yielding to him, said he
would be glad to yield to one of the visit
ing statesmen, whereat Conkling laughed
and left the hall.
When finally the vote was called the Re
publicans sat in their seats and refused to
answer to their names, and then Wgnn fili

a call of the House was ordered. During:
this the Denuvrats discovered that they did
.not have a quorum of Democrats in the
city, and so they moved to adjourn amidst
thu laughter and taunts of the Republicans
that they should not give up tho fight ho

to adjourn and telegraph every absentee.

The lt-publicans were surprised at the
resolution insomuch as it added IynitsUna
and named Sherman and Hayes. This close
hit at Garfield, us he was a "Visiting states

and he showed he is anxious to tight off
the investigation and say that, so far as he
can control his side of the House they will

Their idea is that the Democrats cannot se
cure 147 votes to make a quorum, although
they have twenty more than that numlirr
on the roll of the house. Their plan will
be to keep all Republicans paired with
Democrats out of the city when the Demo
crats arrive, and thus by preventing say 20
Democrats from recording votes, thereby
prevent a quorum. With thisaccomplishi'd,
they will continue to filibuster.
WHO MAY 1IK0N TIIK COMMITTEE.
There is much speculation as to the
names of members to be placed on the se
lect committee of eleven, and many Demo
crats are anxious for a place on it. Potter
will be the chairman, and it is pretty safe,
o namo the following memliers who wilt I hi
chosen by tho speaker: Messrs. LockwiWKf,
of New Vork; McMahou, of Ohio, and J.
Cobb, of Indiana, as among tho seven Dem
ocrats; Messrs. Butler andGarflcliI among;
tho four Republicans.
